This creamy chickpea salad reminds me of late summer days at our grandparents country house in Sweden. I suppose it’s the abundance of dill and it’s vibrant and vigorous scent. It’s just such a Swedish herb. This salad would go perfectly with the traditional Swedish ‘kräftskiva’ I guess. But it’s just as good on its own with a nice slice of bread on the side.
The chickpeas makes this salad a steady meal, the avocado and feta makes it creamy, the cucumber adds a fresh crunch and the dill makes it all come together beautifully. I picked my dill fresh from the garden and the whole kitchen smelled of Swedish summer. This salad is definitely a new favorite on our table. A nice plate to wrap up all those summer flavors. Description at the end.

it’s very easy to make, without any exact measures.. just go with your taste. Add more of the things you like and less of the things you like less or just a lot of everything which is pretty much what I did. Slice and dice, then mix it together with a spoon. Enjoy
